Harvest Time

Dollar Tree has some fantastic buys in crafting and home decor that really allow makers to make really cool decorations for under ten dollars. This is the case with my Harvest Time table center piece.

I picked up from Dollar Tree a styrofoam pumpkin, a bunch of fake autumn leaves, some sparky fern, a gold doily, some glitter pumpkin picks, mummy wrap, Tim Holtz Ideology Pumpkins, Distress ink and a Tim Holtz paper doll.

I had purchased previously the Izink Glitter, which is an extremely thick glitter glue that is full of glitter and fast drying. Using my fingers, I covered the styrofoam pumpkin with that orange glitter, then started arranging the leaves and sparkle ferns on the center piece.

Hot glue was used to attach all the pieces. The leaves are arranged under the pumpkin with the dyed mummy wrap (distress inks were used to get an orange tint). Layering these two, a base for the pumpkin was made, and everything was glued together with hot glue.

Everything else was arranged then glued down.

Finished centerpiece.
